  • 5oz. semisweet chocolate chips (about half a bag)
  • 5oz. bittersweet chocolate chips (about half a bag)
  • 1 cup coffee beans, finely ground
  • 1 tablespoon of freshly brewed coffee
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy cream


  1. Heat up the heavy cream

    Pour heavy cream into a saucepan and bring to a simmer. As it's heating up, place chocolate chips in a medium glass or ceramic bowl.

    Cover and chill the mixture in the refrigerator until firm (about 2–3 hours).

  5. Prep the topping station

    Place ground coffee in a small bowl, and beside it, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  6. Roll the truffles

    Once the truffle mixture has cooled, scoop a tablespoon-sized portion at a time and roll them into balls.*

  7. Top with ground coffee

    Roll the truffles into the ground coffee beans to coat them, then place them onto the lined baking sheet.

  8. Chill coffee-coated truffles

    Place baking sheet with the coated truffles back in the fridge and chill until firm (about 30–60 minutes).
